I noticed tonight that I have numbness on the left side of my scalp. It covers almost my entire left side. I have tried researching this topic all night long and have not found much on the topic, other then what it could be related to (i.e. migraines, stress, anxiety, shingles, whiplash, blunt force trama, etc). Being a mother, of course I have stress and anxiety, and I have had a headache/migraine for about a week now. However, I have had migraines all my life and have never had any numbness before. I am alittle scared. My family like most doesn't have the money to waste going to the ER for useless visits if they are just going to say it is nothing. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, should I be worried? What kind of treatment did you receive? Thank you for any replyer's out there that can help.

  • I often have some scalp numbness or the sensation of cold water on my head. I had this almost constantly some years ago and had it checked out, but they couldn't find anything wrong with me, so just put it down to stress and tension.As there can be other causes of numbness you should see a doctor for advice, but hopefully it won't be anything serious. I still have this feeling at times, but I just try to ignore it and it doesn't stay too long. Good luck!
